Hello #smartcommunityfriends. I’m back with another bonus episode of the Smart Community Podcast sharing various guests answers to the question, ‘Where to next with Smart Cities and Communities?” And this time I’m sharing with you the answers from these guests:
Beate Kubitz from Episode 218
Ashleigh Wilson from Episode 223
Lea Hemetsberger from Episode 226
Marcus Foth from Episode 230
Jo Palmer from Episode 228
Cristina Savian from Episode 229
And finally Katya Petrikevich from Episode 231
Some themes that come through in the guest answers are around remote work, connectivity, knowledge sharing and accessibility of data for communities and individuals.
The impacts of COVID19 are becoming more apparent, we will see more remote work in communities and a shift in the way people can and want to access information and data, particularly in regional and rural areas. Better knowledge sharing and data bases are key to building better connected and smarter communities.
COVID19 has presented a lot of challenges, but also a lot of opportunities to explore how we currently connect and how we can connect and use data better to benefit communities.
As Jo Palmer says, “We are in such an opportune time, and that transfer of information is so much easier and I think that’s exciting for Smart Communities, for all communities, for all individuals regardless of where you are.”
As always we hope you enjoyed listening to this episode as much as we enjoyed making it.
